"Party Shuffle" Behavior

I've been using iTunes for years but have started to get sick of the overall lack of functionality and am looking at switching to Winamp.

The one thing that is keeping me from switching right now is the apparent lack of a "Party Shuffle" mode. I can live without the updating (last song drops off and a new one is added at the bottom) but I need the weighted playback feature. I love having my higher rated songs play more often and my 1 and 2 star songs showing up maybe once a month.

Is there a plugin that can achieve something similar?

What's wrong with the normal shuffle mode? Add your media library, set it on Shuffle and way you go.

Can also combine it with Playlist File Remover to remove the track once played.

Does winamp shuffle weight songs based on ratings?

In itunes party shuffle mode something like 22% of the songs played are 5 stars, a 4 18%, 3 14% and so on until an unrated song only comes up 2% (might not be exact numbers, been a while since I looked it up.

A majority of my library is albums and there are the "singles" that I like to hear more often but I would still like to hear track 11 every once and a while.

Why not create a party playlist from your library, include multiple instances of your favourite tracks and play that on shuffle?
